Version 1.14 focuses on UI improvements and adds bloom as a new rendering effect. Under the hood we've also been busy with new savegame related functionality.
New post-processing effect for “bloom”, enhancing the overall lighting fidelity by applying an additional glow to bright areas of the frame. The bloom effect is enabled in the Defaults and Amplified appearance profiles.

The user home screen settings are remembered, including the configuration of your game groupings for next time.
Log filtering & alerts. If you are only interested in messages from particular subsystems, the log can now be filtered with more granularity. For instance, messages intended for mod and resource authors are separated from regular usage related messages.
